In one of the previous births when the Buddha was born as Bodhisattva, Lord Indra placed an herb in the child's hand. The child's father, seeing the herb in its hand at the time of birth thought it to be a special herb and administered it as medicine to all the illness of local people. They all regained health within no time. Hence, this Bodhisattva came to be called 'Mahoshadha Kumara'. The treatment schedule is developed on the doctrines explained by the Buddha that diseases are caused by vitiation of food (aahara), environment (rutu), consciousness (chitta) and past deeds (karma) – This is the right approach for the cancer management. Hence the name “Mahoshadha”.
Cancer has become a serious problem in the present world. Cancers figure among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with approximately 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer related deaths in 2012 (according to the available WHO World Cancer Report 2014). The number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades which shows the seriousness of the disease. In India 8 lakh new cases are being detected every year. Despite the extensive research work and development of newer drugs and technology in modern oncology cancer has remained a dreaded challenging disease. Ayurveda being an age old health science with scientific therapeutic principles and treasure of thousands of potent safe herbal and mineral products is expected to give an assuring answer to this problem. The excruciating experience of dying cancer patients can be ameliorated by making use of Ayurvedic principles. Ayurveda can be helpful in the management of cancer in many ways such as—prophylactic, palliative, curative and supportive.
